Outfit: DP & eBay Girl

I got this dress on eBay, BNWT, for £4.99. It arrived yesterday. It had ties on the side which I cut off as they were quite heavy due to the weight of the fabric, and wouldn’t have hung properly. I find ties like that very restrictive when it comes to adding cardis over the top, or belts. They don’t really serve a purpose, especially when the dress is fitted like this one is, and I don’t really understand why they appear on so many dresses. What I do like about it though is that it has a piece of fabric sewn in to the v at the front, negating the need for a modesty cami.

I usually wear this cardi as a shrug, tied up at the front. Today though I am taking yet more inspiration from Boutique Girl who has a cardi this sort of shape and wears it belted like this.

Excuse the blurry photos; I must have had the shakes or something this morning! I’ll try to remember to take a better picture when I get home and replace the blurred one.

    I don't wear this shrug/cardi as often as I should, but now I have another way to wear it...
